A couple of weeks ago, I was working at the iii Points festival which highlights art, technology, and music. The event was located in Wynwood, a Miami art district that was perfect for its artistic theme. One of the things that got me hooked was the line up because combined a palette of genres and different stage environments. The entire staff was really friendly and most of them seemed exceptionally knowledgable about their position. The area surrounding the festival hosted many unique shops and locales that highlighted how diverse Miami can really be.
On the other hand, I could tell it was a new festival, and not just because it’s only been around for three years. There are still some organizational skills that need to be developed. I can see opportunities for its future growth, iii Points shows Miami underground music as more than its Caribbean and Latin influences or Ultra-inspired EDM. Miami has a lot to offer not just because of high immigration , but of these disparate cultures mixing and creating something new.
You could tell many artists took their time to make the stage backgrounds as magical as possible and the lighting design was absolutely beautiful; fun fact - the lighting designer of M83 liked my Instagram pic. It’s so cool to see the big picture: just intrinsically all of these art forms coexist. Countless local artists are moved and inspired by the magic of the music every year. Overall, I think that iii Points is a fantastic annual destination that will be especially enjoyed by people who can appreciate not only the Miami’s underground music scene, but also the fine arts and technological innovation.
